Hint From Ken: The quality of grits does make a difference! Cooking with the chicken broth instead of water adds a richer flavor as well.

If you are cooking for vegetarians just substitute vegetable broth for chicken. Sharp cheddar cheese is good as well if gruyere is not an option.

What you’ll need:

2 cups of good quality stone ground grits

6 cups of chicken broth

1 stick of unsalted butter

2 eggs beaten

1 1/2 cups of grated gruyere cheese

1/2 cup of grated parmesan

1/2 cup half and half

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1 tsp Kosher salt

1/2 cup chopped green onion

First:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

With a cold stick of butter rub a 4 quart casserole dish to grease.

Next: 

Prepare grits… Bring broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a boil.

Put grits in a bowl of cold water and stir. Scrape off floating hulls and such that float on top.

Discard excess water and gently add grits, whisking into boiling broth and reduce heat to low… Stir often until grits are ready… between 25 and 40 minutes.

Add milk a little at a time along the way if gets to thick.
